For all arrival dates listed below, if you experience a travel delay or cannot arrive during the times scheduled, you can contact your area office to coordinate a late check in between 8pm-9pm.

 

Undergraduate Residents

*Please note  that this process is not for Graduate students, Resident Assistants, students currently in summer housing, and those expecting to arrive early for assisting with Week of Welcome, campus operation, or athletics.

This year Undergraduate students will be selecting a Fall 2022 move-in time slot via the housing portal. On July 22, 2022, the "Fall 2022 Move-In Appointment Scheduler" process will go live in the housing portal. It will appear as its own tab on top of the housing portal. Students will be required to go through the process to select a move-in date and time. Keep in mind that students will only be shown dates they are eligible for based on the student demographic. The deadline to select a time-slot is August 8th, 2022 at Noon. You will be able to reschedule and cancel your time slot, but must have a final time selected by the deadline.

If there is a large number of students arriving on your selected day, your Area Office will contact you with a specific time frame for your move-in to provide better social distancing and safety during move-in.

 

Summer Move-Over 

What if I am staying on campus over the summer?

If you are rooming on campus over the summer, you will be able to move into your fall 2022 housing assignment on August 7th 10:00am - 1:00pm. All Summer Move-Overs must be completed by August 8th at 4PM. 

 

Early Arrival 

What if I need to arrive earlier?

  • Requests for early arrival of students being sponsored by a department will come through the department sponsor. We will communicate with you in late July about your early arrival.  
  • If you are a new first year or transfer who needs to arrive on August 14 because of travelling from out of the area or internationally, you will have the option of selecting an August 14 arrival date (based on your address on record) in the Fall 2022 Move-In Appointment Scheduler process in the housing portal.
  • If you are a new first year or transfer who needs to arrive on August 14 because of a personal issue, please contact your Area Office. We cannot accept requests from New undergraduates earlier than August 14. 
  • New transfers who need to arrive August 15 or 16 and continuing undergraduates who need to arrive August 15, 16, or 18, may request an early arrival by exception and will be billed for the additional days of early arrival. See the Early Arrival Request Form and submit if interested. Those who are granted an early move-in date and are not affiliated with an organizational office will be billed through the Area Office for the early check-in. These are the only 3 dates for early arrival as all other dates our staff is supporting orientation and prepping for the next scheduled arrival.
  • If you must arrive earlier than your scheduled arrival date, you should consider a hotel by airport or near campus until your arrival date. 
  • West E and G are not available for any kind of early access requests. You will not be able to move in earlier than Saturday, August 20, 2022. If you are part of our summer housing application, you will be housed through summer and early access periods. 
  • Those without summer housing, we cannot house you elsewhere on campus for an early access assignment. If you know you will need early access, please participate in room change or swap this summer to get to a different location on campus. Room change and swap are tentatively set from July 11-18, 2022. 

 

Late Arrival after the Start of Classes

What if I need to arrive later?

  • If you are arriving later than August 21, late check-ins may be requested through this google form for late arrivals. If you have issues with the google form or arriving after your new student arrival date but earlier than August 22, contact your area office to request through them your late arrival.
  • Failure to obtain approval for a late check in will result in the forfeiture of assignment. Late check-in requests cannot be held longer than the end of Late Registration. 
  • Students needing to arrive later than the end of Late Registration must use the Housing Waitlist to obtain on-campus housing, should it still be available. 
 
 
If you have any questions, please contact us at reside@stonybrook.edu and include your SBU ID# in all correspondence so we can best assist you by looking into your specific account.
